Summer Research

I have done research through the Furman Art Department for the summers of 2019 and 2020. During the most recent research, I was able to work with a team of two other students and the Matthew Baumgardner Estate to document the artist studio space and recent Cubes Exhibition as a digital exploration for viewers. We each had different roles to create the culmination of an exhibition website, which can be found at baumgardnerarchives.com. Please note that, as of November 2021, in the process of future groups updating the site, we have lost the host. We are currently working to resolve the issue.

My main roles were to update the existing exhibition catalogue (imperative that I keep the essay and image arrangement determined by the authors), research the best plugins to use (for example, Modula for the photo gallery and 3D Flipbook for the PDF viewer), implement the brand standards into the WordPress site, write a third of the content on the site, create an instructional guidebook for other universities and researchers, and create recommendations with a mockup for documenting the studio space in the future. My role was not to create the brand standards, so I have opted to showcase the two booklets that I created in Adobe InDesign.
